When it comes to installing software on the MacBook Air from another
computers optical drive this feat was first made possible on a Mac
with System 7. With AppleTalk on and a cable connecting both computers
make the mounted optical volume on one computer a share point and
presto you are now accessing and installing files on the first
computer from the second computer's optical drive. This technique
works well for drive-less Duos, the PowerBook 2400 and the PowerBook
5300 not to mention any other optical drive equipped machine. It also
worked over wireless with the advent of Mac OS 9.
